Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Post AWS 55 update! I know, late as normal but I'm feeling nostalgia for these post event posts. https://i.imgur.com/GozPh8v.jpg A fantastic event for Team Shakey finally achieving one of my goals of winning with a spinner, Test came close before but was defeated in the final by ALBOF, but this time...

Re: Increasing numbers

I prefer option 2, hell would make my AWS's easier. I think paired with an expansion to the clusters walkers for last slot and a move to 2 rollers + 1 Else top actually make it effective and really bring variety. I get that this kinda hits a lot of 3 bit teams hard though. 5) I accept I am biased on...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

A bit late for it but throwing out a few pics of Bristol bot Builders 2. This was one of the most fun events I've been to in a long time, I joined in the bodgebots with 'Pukka', a robot more bodge than any I could do while sober. https://i.imgur.com/MOIKGcO.jpg The addition of pipe cleaner decoratio...

Re: No control

Do you have a servo lying around you can use? If the servo works on the RX you'll know the ESC's are the problem, if the servo doesn't it's in the TX/RX. Just helps to start narrow down the cause.

Re: No control

You need to hold it in bind not only for the light to stop flashing but to then come back and stay on solidly.

Re: Devo 7e Question

Also you can just hit the ENT key to go through the warning if your throttle won't actually go to the right value. An option tucked away somewhere is called 'calibrate sticks' which can help with this (and general trim issues).

Re: T_Y's Build Log

Those driver boards don't have connections for the receiver. The reason those are 'cheap' is because they are simply a single component of a typical ESC, vitally missing is the micro controller which translated the receivers signals into signals that can be used to control those driver boards.

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Unfortunately this won't be able to cut metal (I'd need to add about 2 zeros onto it's pricetag for that!), I've only cut them as they were the first DXF's I found in my mammoth CAD folder. :P But it'll be pretty handy to check stuff like that before getting it done properly. Cut a FW out of MDF to ...

Re: Walker rule clarification? Unusual design.

It is plainly clear that a bristlebot would completely qualify for walker allowance under the current ruleset as detailed in my previous post (final output = contact surface) and there is no reason for that to change; the engineering challenge is more than enough to contend with. The issue is that ...

Re: Walker rule clarification? Unusual design.

I don't agree with bristle bots being walkers. I consider the final drive output to be the last directly driven component in the drive, not just a part that vibrates. Bristlebots in my mind have a final output that is rotating through 360 degrees.
